The Great Balloon Hullabaloo by Peter Bently - ESSENTIAL

Bently, Peter The Great Balloon Hullabaloo, illustrated by Mei Matsuoka.  PICTURE BOOK.  Andersen Press (Lerner), 2014.  $17.  Content: G.  

Simon Squirrel has a small grocery list to help his mom.  He and his friends go off in a cosmic shopping trip n Uncle Somerset’s special balloon, find honey on Mars and TP on Uranus (come on, admit it – that’s kind of funny), with a little danger and a lot of fun along the way. 

It took me a bit to get into the uneven rhyme scheme, but reading it out loud helped.  The pictures are delightful and really steal the show.  Put this in the stack for pre-school reading time.
